Thyroid-SPOT for mobile devices: personalised thyroid treatment management app

Thyroid-SPOT is a mobile application that allows users to be able to analyse thyroid function tests laboratory reports by computing the homeostatic euthyroid set point based on regressing thyroid function data according to a patented algorithm to define the parameters that maximize the goodness-of-fit to a negative exponential model for target-centric individualized treatment.

DNA2App: Mobile sequence analyser

Smartphones have changed the convenience of everyday life and promises to facilitate core biomedical research analysis. To materialize this for research, we created DNA2App, a free standalone native Android and iOS mobile application that analyzes nucleic acid and amino acid sequences. Boasting a built-in database of more than 240 restriction sites and the amino acid codon table, the app allows sequences to be reverse complemented, translated in all 3 frames and searched for restriction sites, and their GC content and melting point can be calculated.

GelApp: Mobile gel electrophoresis analyser

GelApp is a free mobile application that automatically detects and quantifies gel electrophoresis bands for “on
-the-go” gel documentation. It facilitates quantitative biological research by providing more accurate band sizes.
Through the novel implementation of Gabor filters, faint bands can be better detected from noisy backgrounds th

The Rise of the Mobile Lab the Use of Smartphone Apps for Biomedical Research

Mobile apps have invaded almost every aspect of life, yet few are relevant for biomedical experimental research. The entry of the few mobile apps targeted at experimental processes promise to revolutionize biomedical research, greatly
increasing the convenience of analyzing experiments and potentially displacing certain lab equipment with the smartphone.
In anticipation of this progress towards a mobile experimental lab, we surveyed the two popular mobile app stores — Google
